Politicos, journalists, business leaders, and socialites descended on K Street Wednesdy evening to support world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Tina Alster as she launched W for MEN, the world’s first clinical dermatology practice dedicated to advanced laser and other skin treatments for men.
Dr. Terrence Keaney, a board-certified dermatologist with specialized interest and training in the specific cosmetic dermatologic needs of men, is spearheading the men’s center under the auspices of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery(WIDLS).
“By recognizing the differences in male and female anatomy and physiology, W for MEN was conceived to provide an appropriately male centric approach in the treatment and care of men’s skin,” said Dr. Alster, the founding director of the Institute. She further adds, “Dr. Keaney brings a wealth of knowledge to support our commitment to providing the highest level of care for our male patients.”
This unique area of focus is evident immediately upon entering the facility -an environment of inviting privacy and masculine appeal. The range of services offered also reflects the dermatologic issues specific to men of all ages, including laser and other treatments for sun damage, rosacea, acne, scars, tattoos, hair removal, hair restoration, body sculpting and excessive sweating.
The event was sponsored by New Beauty magazine; Allergan, the distributor of Botox, Juvederm and Latisse; CoolSculpting; Miradry and Solta Medical.
Attendees sipped Prosecco and noshed on hors d’oeuvres as they toured the new W for MEN facility and learned about the various treatment options available to men.
The evening closed with door prize winners being announced. The lucky winners were treated to products from Dr. Alster’s own SKIN IS IN skin care line, New Beauty product test tubes, Latisse for longer and thicker eyelashes and specialized MiraDry anti-perspiration and CoolScupting body contouring treatments.

As the Washington Post reports, throughout the city, there are parades and concerts and more all Memorial Day weekend.
"A dining room is like a ballet, it is a cabaret full of culinary music and art. The Ballet Russes period in Paris was full of creativity, and I took inspiration from traditional Russian menus, to create dishes as modern as Diagliev. I am honored to have my food featured with such a extraordinary international collaboration."
While Citronelle is temporarily closed, Georgetown's award-winng chef, Michel Richard will be dazzling art lovers and gouremts alike at the National Gallery of Art.
Inspired by Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, 1909–1929: When Art Danced with Music, on view in the East Building from May 12 through September 2, 2013, Michel Richard will transform the menu of the Gallery's Garden Café with dishes highlighting Russian and French influences.
The new Garden Café Ballets Russes menu, available May 7, is presented in partnership with Restaurant Associates and Executive Chef Pierre Cummings at the National Gallery of Art.
The Garden Cafe Ballets Russes menu was developed by Chef Michel Richard as a modern spin on Russian and French bistro classics. As an avid art enthusiast, Chef Richard was inspired by artistry of Serge Diaghilev’s groundbreaking Ballets Russes, which drew upon both Russian and Western traditions. “A dining room is like a ballet, it is a cabaret full of culinary music and art,” says Richard. “The Ballet Russes period in Paris was full of creativity, and I took inspiration from traditional Russian menus, to create dishes as modern as Diagliev. I am honored to have my food featured with such an extraordinary international collaboration.”
Chef Richard's buffet incorporates a variety of traditional Russian dishes with seasonal French ingredients, including Russian black bread; lentil salad; borscht; blini with caviar; Eggplant d’Aubergine; beef stroganoff; salmon coulbiac; and Strawberries Romanoff for dessert. White, red, and sparkling wines from French vineyards complement the menu, as well as a selection of beers from the Czech Republic.
The Garden Café is located in the West Building near the entrance at 6th Street and Constitution Avenue NW. To make reservations for groups of eight or more, please contact the café manager at 202.712.7454. For more information about the Gallery and its restaurants, visit www.nga.gov/dining.
